8:00pm
the the. 900 sailors were left to fend for themselves. that was 66 years ago today. i am harris faulkner. thank you for being here. huckabee is next. [applause] >> mike: thank you very much . welcome to a special edition of huckabee from new york. we are live tonight as some leaders on capitol hill think we are getting closer to reach a debt deal. mike emanuel has the developments and we'll talk to congressman david dwyer why he introduced a carbon copy of the reed rode bill to the floored . cut, cap and balance . much more on the show tonight. we are live as i say from new
8:01pm
york in a special moment as we watch the unfolding of the debt crisis deal. you know, the big difference between campaigning and governing is simple. in a campaign it is your message and platform 100 percent. you frame the entire message and drive the points that you think are important and ignore the things you don't about and understand. the result of the campaign you are elected, you have to shift gear to governing mode. that is like killing a deer in the wood and cooking it in the kitchen. tools that you use to kill the deer are . different than the ones you cook and serve it with. folks have campaigned but can't trannsition from the woods or kitchen n a campaign there is no recognition that the other candidates might have ideas that are better or
8:02pm
at least more palatable than your own. it is political suicide to open a campaign debate by saying my opponent has a better idea on improving schools than i do. no, candidates have an answer and a plan to everything. if you don't, you still do. being a candidate is a practice scrimmage. governorship is where everyone is trying to win and no one wants to lose. no one holds the office because he was humble and sempish. there is a room for them to val daid what they the campaign is real. they will lose battles but have to learn to live to fight another day. if they use all of their water on one fire. they have no water left . the debt ceiling is a crisis, because the players never left the woods and came to the
8:03pm
kitchen. they are still shooting when they ought to be using . the elmerfudd of the drama is president obama who knows how to campaign but shown a lack of understanding of how to govern. he put fuel on the fire when it need said water and instead of negotiating a solution he holds meaningless press conferences to blame everyone else. i hear about the adults in the room. if these are the adults, let's turn to the kitchen over the kids. they can't make a bigger mess than has already been made. that's my view and i welcome yours and you can contact me at mike huckabee.comin the fox news feed back section. on capitol hill fox's corspendent mike emanuel has latest developments. what is the latest you are hearing from the democrats. >>reporter: good evening, governor. nancy pelosi told reporters
8:04pm
that the tock is clicking and looked serious and somber late afternoon in the white house. she was if she is unhappy. he is unhappy with the idea of 1.2 trillion in cuts which is believed to be part of the deal that is locked in on in the coming hours and days . meanwhile, the senate leader harry reid is negotiating with mitch mcconle and take a lin. >> he is my friend. i will come to his office and go to the white house with him and do anything that i can do to move the process over. i say respectfully to my senator friend from kentucky it will not this day. >> reading in the lines, republicans are refusing to negotiate with the democrat counter part.
8:05pm
they appear ting directly negotiating with the white house, governor. >> the republicans sound more upbeat at this point, don't they? >> that is correct . all it seemed to take was a few phone calls with the president and vice-president. here is senator mitch mcconnel >> i am more optmistic than my friend who is the majority leader. we have talked to the president and vice-president several times. i think we have a chance of getting there. with he is referring to senator reid trying to move it on the floor . i should note at the house today truck down the language of the reid bill in the house. governor? >> mike: mike emanuel thank you for reporting from capitol hill. republican congressman david
8:06pm
dwyer is chairman of the rules committee. first of all you introduced the reid look alike bill. what were you doing and why would you introduce harry reid's bill in the house. >> it is great to be with you. in our west to be bipartisan, i would like to take your deer hunting cooking story and quote harry truman. if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. >> mike: our audience loves that, congressman. >> did you like it, mike is the question. let me tell you what happened. as you know from the house, we passed two mess measures cut, cap and balance . we were just able to pass by a narrow margip john boehner's plan that stemmed from the bipartisan meeting in the building in the capitol when we saw john boehner sitting
8:07pm
with harry reid andy mitch mcconnell and we know that hairy reid backed away after the president made it clear he didn't want democrat to support it mitch mcconnell is repeatedly asking. he is harry reid to bring it for . we are waiting right now until 1:00 tomorrow morning and the fact it, mitch made the request and harry reid said no. mitch asked us to say since senator reid said his plan was the only one to pass . he asked us to introduce it in the house and it was overwhelmingly defeat in a bis partisan way. we know we have to work in a way to address this. there are 75 times we have seen the debt ceiling increased since 1962. don rumsfeld was with the first one and he's talking about this on his book tour
8:08pm
and look at where we are 14.3 trillion dollar national debt. what are we doing the first time. we are focusing on the root cause of the problem. we don't have a debt ceiling problem. we have a debt problem. that's what we are going to do to get to to the root. >> mike: congressman, this is a bigger issue over the long haul. demdeps accuse you of playing games. but your point is, it was reid who said he had the only bill that could pass the house. you proved it can't pass the house. what is the message that you hope your counter part senate will get to that? >> that is a great question, mike. we need to come together but need to realize that the perfect harry reid bill and no one calls their bills perfect. but he certainly believed it was the best bill there and
8:09pm
that in fact could enjoy strong support. we proved it can be part of the discussion, but not the focal point and center piece of the discussion that is taking place . there are a number of things between harry reid's bill and john boehner's bill that are together. >> they call for a selection of a joint committee and make recommendations for the spending cuts . so just the fact that we have democrats to talk about the notion of decreasing spending is an overwhelming victory. it has not been done before. we have a process of bipartisanship now. >> congressman, i want to get your take on the atmosphere of the house is toxic. nancy pelosi made derogatory comments about the speaker . just in a nut shell, is it as toxic on the floor as it appears to us watching from
8:10pm
the cheap seat. >> you have a responsibility of sitting there and listening to everything. so many new members. we have a lot of good people who offered thought and less than bombastic statements and yet they continue to accuse us was getting rid of a social security. it is criminal for an 85 year old woman they tell me you are trying to get rid of your social security. no one over the age of 55 will be impacted and getting to the class warfare. 03 tax cuts of president bush. we saw 1.782 trillion dollars in revenues in 07 and they went to 2.567 and 44 percent increase and 785 billion increase, that's the way make sure we have growth oriented tax cuts to get the debt down and along with the effort to
8:11pm
reduce spending. >> congressman david drier thank you. >> mike: we have more including israeli prime minister netanyahu and music from the gaitlin . author of cut, cap and balance. congressman reed ribble is joining me next. stay with us. turn left.

8:14pm
>> we'll talk to congress reed riddle of wisconsin. i know you guys are busiy appreciate your take. i want to ask you about the part of the bill. a lot of democrats supported this in the past and they have said it was a great idea and now a terrible idea. what changed in their point of
8:15pm
view? why are they running for something they once supported? >> why are they running from something that the american people support. this has broad support across the nation. >> mike: congressman, it showed 75 percent of the american people support a balanced budget amendment. >> it is straightforward common sense . we theed to have government do it in washington. >> mike: there are people who point out the balanced budget amendment is different than the ones the democrats supported. maybe republicans have a modified version if you could get it passed through the senate among the democrats? >> i talked to a lot of my colleagues in the conference and aisle. we wrote cut, cap and balance, they put it together . >> we could get bipartisan
8:16pm
agreement. i don't understand what the president and democrats are afraid of except that the american people say yes. >> mike: how frustrated are you when your bill gets to the house and pass and then in the senate it is cut. >> it is the second time. i just wanted to give people a chance to have their say. when you start the segment you have a live shot from the u.s. senate chamber. i haven't seen them moving over there since i got to congress. >> mike: congressman there is a long-time expression. people in the house say that the other party are my opponents but the senate is my enemy. do you sometimes feel that way? >> i have the last couple of weeks. they are trying to make it about the debt limit and using language like the debt limit. that is not the crisis. the debt is the crisis and my bill was design to fix it.
8:17pm
>> mike: talk about speaker boehner's leadership of the house. there is criticisms from outside. i want to say up front. i think he handled it masterfully as a person who has one-half of the one of the 3moving parts of government . a lot of people don't understand he doesn't own the white house or senate. he has a slim majority in the house. assess for me how he with the divided republican caucus. >> he is skillful and tactful and in our conference meetings, he is like a motivational coach. he was not beraiding anybody. he has a tough job. republican conference is broadd. you have a freshman class that is large and diverse and we have the rest of the conference that have been here for a while. i don't envy his position but i admire the way he does his jobb. >> mike: congressman, i think a lot of you have won.
8:18pm
the debate is not how much you are going to spend but what you are cutting. is it time for the republicans to declare victory and find common depround and move on? >> i think it is time for the congress and the senate and both house and senate to find out what the american people want and that's what government is supposed to be about. ultimately there will be movement, but be frank here. the republicans in the house of representatives have done all of the moving. we sent cut, cap and balance over to them. day or so ago we sent the boehner bill to them and they tabled that one as well . we had to have one of our colleagues bring the rebill to the floor. all we get from the senate is a memo. >> mike: congressman, thank you for being here and what you said earlier. you framed it better than what
8:19pm
i heard anybody say. it is not what the republicans want but what the people want. it is refreshing to understand why you are there. you get it and thank you for helping all of us see that. >> that is a kind word. thank you, governor. >> mike: it is a plires. up next, the very guys who threaten to default are the guys who can prevent it charlie will tell you after the break. stay with us.

as the senate works late in senate night for a debt solution will wall street like
8:23pm
what the deal is? we'll find out from charlie in the fox business network. i wish i could say who cares but we need to care. >> why should wall street have a role here. the market is going to be interesting. if there is any reason for a movement with the republican deal, it is because they are worried about the markets on monday. if we have a major sell off. market went down 400 poigns and that's what they are worried about. it is interesting . the white house is interested in something opposite. if they can get around the debt that doesn't go above the debt cap . they are fiending out measures will not make it and they have to do deep cuts.
8:24pm
we learned that people could have prevented it. >> tim geithner could have prevented it. >> mike: what could he have done. >> i talked to the rating agencies. they have talked to him since march. they knew it was coming down the pike. you would think at that point they would have got serious and have had legitimate meetings and the president instead of attacking paul ryan. he came out with a good plan. there could have been a compromise. instead he becomely hut down any sort of the compromise. you have to ask the white house why in march when they knew it was a downgrade pending and the rating agencies were gettingantsy. why didn't they act? >> mike: charlie, you are one of the few people who have
8:25pm
courage to say something about the brokerage houses who are paying for the political support for the president. what role have they played, spectacularly goldman saches. why we have the particular administration in congress and the role they played in not getting out of the situation? >> what is interested about goldman saches last thursday he told political leaders to grow up and be big boys. my head almost exploded. they are the biggest hypocrites in the world. [applause] cthe wall street crowd, think about this . i really, i think that this is so important for people to realize that if anybody is making money off of the massive size of government and sell of debt, it is lloyd baselinefine and the wall street guys and money
8:26pm
management if i recalls that are urging a resolution on this. governor, linn, we shouldn't default. we don't have to default. tim geithner's not that dumb. >> mike: i am not worrying that. >> i will say this. the bottom line is we issue a lot of debt and someone is making money off of it, it is wall street. >> mike: if the whole thing falls apart . we get downgraded, tell me specifically what happens to joe america out there? >> let's start breaking tup. we go in default and we don't have to go in default. i wrote the story last week on the fox business network. president's people said we'll do everything but going to default and our bond goes to d we'll have a financial collapse it will be bad. all of the financial
8:27pm
instruments if it goes to d it is massive loss says. i think standard and poors is likely to downgrade . the impact of that. if they start cutting stuff. let's say they do two billion of legitimate cuts and s&p downgrades us. i don't think the market will care. that's what killed me about the wall street guys. they are make like it is not a debate. aside from national defense and social security what is the best debate. it is the amazing debate. >> mike: it does impact on everything from a bank loan and maul business owners able to fund the inventory on the shelve. everyone will be affected to this and our message to washington get the job done quiet. >> by tuesday. >> mike: and one person who gets it done is charlie and

there? >> mike from our perspective we have to get a grip on spending and create a economic environment. we have to do it just like you did in arkansas and get a grip on spending. with the debt ceiling increase we have to get reductions that equal or exceed the debt ceiling. that is fundmental for the fiscal health of our country. >> mike: what about attitudes. >> we are consistent and we'll get there. >> mike: are senators angry or frustrated and tell me their emotion when they are in the room and what they are expressing? >> all of the above. all of the above. but my feeling we laid out a plan to get the country back to fiscal health and have to do it now and future generations for our kids. to have the kind of country we grew up in.

8:42pm
would apologize anymore than america would apologize for killing osama bin laden. i discussed the policy with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. this is the second part. israel turned away protestors that wanted to come here and raise noise . ing arey detain 69 denied entry and never got in the country. criticism came to israel in a land of free speech. >> it was not a question of speech, but it was a question of deliberate provocations in some cases had viulentt overtones. thousands of people were you know going to descend on the u.s. and have massive demonstrations aligned america's worst enemies. would they do that? >> mike: i would hope not.
8:43pm
>> what would happen in immigration. >> mike: i don't know. >> at the airport immigration officials are pretty tough. i have seen them work. >> mike: speaking thav. a lot of americans feel that the israelis have a better handle on airport security than we do in the tsa. give us adrice and tell us things that americans might learn from the israelis and operated without incident and you have been targeted more than anybody else . the process through which americans go through to get on an airplane is increasingly unpopular. >> that is tough. i think it is unpopular but when planes fall down from the sky. >> mike: but the process in israel is different. it is not the procedure of taking off your shoes and having someone put hands in your belt. is there something we could learn from you? >> i haven't looked at it
8:44pm
recently. what makes it better for all of us soon will be technology and that gets intrusive. but technology can do a, a warks i with it and you can sail through if you are not a terrorist. >> mike: there is certainly an ongoing issue of the flostilla that some have put together against gaza and you are effective and successful in keeping a repeat of last year's flostill it >> deadly raid on the flostilla. soldiers opened fire only after being attacked. activist said their flostilla were bringing aid to gaza. protestors in israel said the country has the right to defend itself. >> mike: how does this continue to threaten the sovereign and safety and image
8:45pm
of israel? >> it is deliberately abused. people say we want a free gaza. a free gaza what? we want to import and want the people of gaza to import goods. they can't, because basically, you know brought down all of the limitation. you can import gaza and cars and pasta, anything. medicine, toys, you name it. it is completely open . the gaza economy grew in the last quarter by how much? >> mike: no. >> put your seat belt on. >> mike: i am braced. >> 25 percent. >> mike: 25 percent. >> highest of the world. >> mike: i would think so. >> so they are doing all right. but so we don't have any action and we don't want to take action against the people
8:46pm
of gasa. but gaza is governed and control would by this dictatorial regime of hamas and aligned with iran and a proxy of iran and it is depriving the free speech. women can't go out freely. it is a oppressive regime. free gaza. free them of hamas. they are not smuglingg in good and medicine. but they are trying to smuggle in rockets and weapons. you have seen the rockets. they want to snuggle in more. we are willing to let you bring in everything except weapons . the place where they smuggle weapons is not the boats. one ship they can bring in the stuff that would take six month to muggle through.
8:47pm
